It looks like producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are doing anything they can to add drama to the show. RadarOnline is reporting Bravo producers and executives are doing anything they can to lure Brandi Glanville’s nemesis, LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of RHOBH.Â â€œProducers have approached LeAnn multiple times about joining the cast and have been pursuing her even harder in recent weeks,â€ a source tells Radar. â€œViewers are fascinated by Brandi, how sheâ€™s dealt with her marriage being broken up by LeAnn, and the pain that continues to cause her and her family.”
“Executives at Bravo have told LeAnn that appearing on the show would be a great opportunity for her to get her side of the story out and no longer be seen in a negative light. However, she has continued to shut the offers down, claiming she doesnâ€™t want the added drama in her life, that she has a flourishing music career, and that she just doesnâ€™t need to do a reality television show,” the source explains.
So how does Brandi fell about LeAnn possibly joining the cast? RadarOnline reports,Â â€œBrandi is a very smartÂ cookie and recognizes thatÂ if LeAnn wereÂ to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife,â€ a source tells the site.
â€œBrandi wants to become Bravoâ€™s nextÂ Lisa VanderpumpÂ orÂ Bethenny FrankelÂ and have her own spin-off show; having LeAnn join the cast will almost cement that desire.Â Viewers love BrandiÂ andÂ her bookÂ has seen a very strong debut,â€ the insider added.Â â€œBrandi isnâ€™t surprised that LeAnn has turned down the offer to be on the show, but she feels that the country singer owes it to her to sign on after breaking up her marriage. Brandi has been adamant that her sons with Eddie Cibrian absolutely wouldnâ€™t be a part of any filming with LeAnn. She would shield them from all of the drama, as she has always done,â€ the source revealed.
RumorFix reports LeAnn is NOT joining the cast and has never been asked by producers. RHOBH sources tell the site “It’s not going to happen,” andÂ â€œIt was never discussed. She was never contacted.â€
